Caramelized Onion and Artichoke Pizza (Vegan)

From STLVegGirl.....I want to be her when I grow up!....ILVegGirl? ;)


  • 1 Tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, cut in half then thinly sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 Tbsp of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp of thyme
  • 1 prepared pizza dough or crust (use whole grain, if possible)
  • 1 cup of non-dairy mozzarella (I used Daiya)
  • 1 can of artichoke hearts in water, chopped
  • 2-3 Tbsp of high-quality balsamic vinegar or balsamic glaze


Preheat oven to 400. If using a dough which needs to be baked before adding pizza toppings, follow package instructions. In a medium to large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onions, garlic, brown sugar, salt, and thyme. Cover skillet, cooking onions until they soften. Once onions are soft, uncover skillet and cook onions until they start to brown, about 10 minutes. Stir onions frequently. Once onions are fully cooked, assemble your pizza: top crust with half of cheese, followed by onions, artichokes, and remaining cheese. Bake pizza 15-20 minutes or until cheese is golden brown and crust is crisp. Let pizza cool 3 minutes before serving then top with balsamic vinegar or glaze. Cut into 8 slices. Enjoy!
